Book Description
“I think I could be a good woman, if I had five thousand a year,” observes beautiful and clever Becky Sharp, one of the wickedest—and most appealing—women in all of literature. Becky is just one of the many fascinating figures that populate William Makepeace Thackeray’s novel Vanity Fair, a wonderfully satirical panorama of upper-middle-class life and manners in London at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Scorned for her lack of money and breeding, Becky must use all her wit, charm and considerable sex appeal to escape her drab destiny as a governess. From London’s ballrooms to the battlefields of Waterloo, the bewitching Becky works her wiles on a gallery of memorable characters, including her lecherous employer, Sir Pitt, his rich sister, Miss Crawley, and...

Book Description
A biographical and critical study of one "English Literary Great" by another. In this biographical sketch of the great 19th century English novelist and poet, who the author knew personally for some years, Trollope writes: "He passed through the course of mingled failure and success which, though the literary aspirant may suffer, is probably better for the writer and for the writings than unclouded early glory." Thackeray's writings were originally published in Fraser's Magazine and Punch, and Trollope discusses Thackeray's novels Vanity Fair, Pendennis, and Henry Esmond, as well as Thackeray's burlesques, lectures, ballads, and finally, his style and manner of work. Trollope uses a tone that is historical and critical. This is an interesting study into the obscure, little-known life and work of a writer whose...

The incomparable Miriam Margolyes applies her story-telling and histrionic gifts to this classic satire of two young English women, one bad but clever and the other good but stupid, who come to no good during the Napoleonic Wars. The abridgers have cut a bit too much at the expense of the characterizations. Although sounding somewhat forced, Margolyes, as always, gives an excellent performance.
